Rebooting much-loved franchises is always risky. Recent history, however, has taught us that the risk can pay off with the well received revivals of games like SSX and the fresh new take on Devil May Cry.

Spider-Man has been a favourite of mine for years. The only difference between the red-and-blue-clad heroes is that Spider-Man has had more games over the years while the likes of Superman haven’t. Yet.
We dont only just review games here at GhostStorm, we review other things too sometimes and this time its a book called The Art of Gears of War 3 which was provided by the lovely folks at Ballistic Publishing.
